Kenny Wilson (born 15 September 1946) is a former Scottish professional association football player.

His main achievement was in the 1971–72 season, when he played for the Dumbarton team that won the Second Division. He was generally regarded as the strongest player in that team.[citation needed] He set the record for the most goals scored for Dumbarton in that season, scoring all the goals in a 5-0 victory over Raith Rovers F.C..

Most Dumbarton supporters were stunned when they sold him to Carlisle United early in the next season. He was not particularly successful at Carlisle, and now lives in Dumbarton.
